Shadow Dancing the Ying and Yang

Shadow Dancing the Ying And Yang


when they will their

tight exclusive circle

of whispered innuendo


their dawg bone chewing

fighting stance for war

without provocation


the priesthood stagnant

is reduced to plastic flowers

heavy suffocation incense

dripping molten psychosis


oppressive wind

of fearsome perportion

warm primordial secretion


honey and snake venom

dismemberment their message

death without reincarnation


the morning summer Sun saddened

conceals its face behind doubtful clouds


we sit respectfully

suffer the carnage

offer a cooling quench

of life-giving Water


a slice of fry bread

dipped in homemade

hot sauce to re-balance

burn away the intrusion
